Edited crypttab and fstab, now system doesn't start.


I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 AMD64 Precise Pangolin with two encrypted hard drives using LVM. After installing Ubuntu I tried adding the second hard drive to crypttab and fstab so it would be mounted at startup, but apparently I did something wrong, as after rebooting I'm sent to BusyBox.

I burned an Ubuntu live cd (12.04) and was able to mount the second hard drive, but not the system drive where I was hoping to edit crypttab and fstab again so I'd be able to boot normally.

Here's what happens when I try to mount it:

Quote:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/ubuntu/root /mnt/ubu
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/ubuntu-root,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

- What changes did you make exactly?
- Did you make a backup before fscking around?
- Have you tried rebooting w/o the 2nd disk attached?
- Have you looked at this, this or this procedure-wise?

I added this line to crypttab
Quote:
sdb1_crypt UUID=667af198-3973-41e8-a127-874a2f5a9fbf none luks
and I *think* I added this to fstab

/dev/mapper/debian-disk /disk ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
I do have a backup since installing Ubuntu a few days ago (switching from Debian) but I moved some files to the drive I can't access instead of copying.

I looked at your links but I'm not sure they'd help here.
